Stalinist Cinema and the Production of History

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the three film adaptations of Maxim Gorky's novel Mother. It compares the directorial styles of film directors Vsevolod Pudovkin, Mark Donskoi and Gleb Panfilov, and their adherence to Gorky's plot. The chapter suggests that through these three Mother films one can study the history of Soviet culture and Soviet historical consciousness, and explains how Mother attracted recurring interest as a novel and in its life in the theatre and in the cinema.

Keywords:   Mother, Maxim Gorky, film adaptations, Vsevolod Pudovkin, Mark Donskoi, Gleb Panfilov, Soviet culture, historical consciousness
